Trilateral Commission

     Everyone remembers the times in early childhood when their dad would hand them a
picture book and ask them what they saw. Unbeknownst to the child, the picture
contained a hidden picture or message. Although difficult to see, it was there.

Even if refused by acknowledgement, it still existed. Such is the case with
todayís government. The so called "world leaders" are only puppets
acting under the control of the great puppeteers. Whether it is soaring gas
prices, a fluctuating economy, or shifts in political power; secret entities of
elite caliber are the masterminds behind all world affairs. These expert
manipulators covertly gather behind closed doors and make decisions that affect
the lives of every human being on the face of the earth. By exploiting political
positions, exclusive members of the Trilateral Commission secretly direct,
manipulate, and are making advances to eventually control the governments of the
world, as a whole. The Trilateral Commission is an American based, political
super power that claims to have its interest asserted in shaping and protecting
foreign policy. The founder of the Trilateral Commission and chairman of the

Chase Manhattan Bank, David Rockefeller, wrote to the New York Times and said:

My point is that far from being a coterie of international conspirators with
designs on covertly conquering the world, the Trilateral Commission is, in
reality, a group of concerned citizens interested in identifying and clarifying
problems facing the world and in fostering greater understanding and cooperation
among international allies. (Rockefeller 22.1) It is easy to say that their
cause is benevolent, but are there ulterior motives? Is the Trilateral

Commission attempting to mold public policy and construct a framework for
international stability in the coming decades? Commission members such as David

Rockefeller and former President Jimmy Carter are in such influential positions
of power that world domination is not far from their clutches. Although a
one-world government sounds foolish, it is not far from the truth. The

Trilateral Commission describes their organization as a multicultural,
transnational including members from Japan, Canada, and various other countries.

John B. Oakes of the New York Times commented on the behalf of the

Commissionís members: The Trilateral Commission is neither super-government
nor secret society. It is rather a loosely defined "think tank,"
godfathered by David Rockefeller and nurtured in its early years by Zbigniew

Brzezinski. Most of its 250 invited members come from the super-elite of
international business, banking, and finance in the developed countries of the

West and Japan, with a sprinkling of high-level academics and former officials,
a few legislators, and even a stray leader or two. At their periodic closed-
door meetings, they debate the economic and political roles of the
industrialized democracies. (Oakes A27) This article, which was written in 1980,
tells us the commission was founded by David Rockefeller, includes 250 mostly
upper class citizens from the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan. It warps
the truth by failing to mention that over 90% of the members are American
citizens that belong to the Council on Foreign Relations (Road Show of

Deception). Council membership is by invitation only, and restricted to American
citizens. The Trilateral Commission is an inner circle of Council on Foreign

Relations members. A list of 1992 Commission members is contained on a website
entitled Road Show of Deception. It contains 337 names, 316 are found on various

Council on Foreign Relations membership lists. Another 21 people are either

Americans not found on these Council on Foreign Relations rosters, or are

European and Japanese members (Road Show of Deception 2). By distorting the
truth, the Trilateral Commission clearly manipulates the media into reporting
false information to the public so that their hidden agenda can pass by naÔve
eyes. The Trilateral Commission capitalizes on political positions to add to
their number of influential power-heads. For example, George Wald, an emeritus
professor of Biology at Harvard and co-recipient of the 1967 Nobel Prize for

Medicine, wrote a letter to the New York Times concerning the Trilateral

Commission: An extraordinary fraction of the Carter Administration was drawn
from its membership: President Carter himself, Vice President Mondale, Security

Advisor Brzezinski, ex-Secretary of State Vance, ex-Secretary of Treasury

Blumenthal, Secretary of Defense Brown, Deputy Secretary of State Warren

Christopher, Deputy Secretary of Energy Sawhill, Federal Reserve Chairman

Volcker, Special Assitant Hedley Donovan, Counsel to the President Lloyd Cutler
and a scattering of other high functionaries. (All such persons continue to be
listed by the Trilateral Commission as "Former Members in Public

Service.") (Wald 14:4). By gaining more and more dynamic men in high
places, more power is consumed by the people drawing them in. This combining of
power forces consolidates the leaders in world, thus moving closer and closer to
an unseen one-world government. In addition, former Senator Barry Goldwater
described the Trilateral Commission as " the vehicle for multinational
consolidation of the commercial banking interests by seizing control of the
political government of the United States" (qtd. in Goldwater). The

Trilateral Commission is merely an excuse to select the effective and wealthy
aristocracy of our time. When the men with the money join the club, they open
new doors to seize control of the world market by regulating major commodities
such as petroleum, gold bullion, and precious gems. The Trilateral Commission
will persevere to gain all major super powers in the world too usher in the
completion of their extensive solitary establishment. All around us, there are
signs of globalization. Whether we choose to observe them or not is up to us.

Through their manipulation, they twist and contort the facts and blind the
public into staying content with their "prefect" world when in
reality, they have no say in who rules over them. Only until the Trilateral

Commission has a single all-powerful government will they stop to absorb the
individual leaders of the world. Only until one digs deep into foreign affairs
can one discover the secret and elite rulers of our time. As in the words of

British Statesman, Benjamin Disraeli, "So you see, my dear Coningsby, that
the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by
those who are not behind the scenes." (Allen 97)
